HCCC named to 'Military-Friendly Schools' list

Hudson County Community College (HCCC) was chosen from a list of 7,000 higher education institutions nationwide to be named to the "Military-Friendly Schools" list. Fifteen percent of the nation's higher education schools are chosen to make the list by the G.I. Jobs Military Friendly Schools team.

Pando, vice president for the North Hudson Center/Student Affairs; Glen Gabert, president of HCCC; and Peter Vida, associate dean of enrollment services

In order to be named to the list, schools must welcome American military veteran, active-duty and reserve students and must provide military students with flexibility in their classes, access to financial aid and gains such as an ongoing campus veterans' program and credit for service.

"All of us here at the college consider it a privilege to serve the men and women who have played such an enormous role in protecting our country," said Glen Gabert, HCCC president, in a statement. "Hudson County Community College has always been a military-friendly school, and we are very happy to be officially recognized for that."
